“A surprisingly real and visually amazing story (…) Perhaps the harsh stories about drugs are nothing new, but this one sure has something deep to share.”
– Owen Gleiberman: Variety

“The war takes on a mithological tone to narrate what it is, essentially, a story about latinamerican gangsters (…) the makers assume a sober tone that evades the narco movies’ violent excesses.”
Leonardo García Tsao: La Jornada 

“The result is potent, articulate,  splattered by extraordinary sequences, and it is build wiht a maginific sense of rythm.”
Sergio Huibobro: Cine Premier 

“Superbly crafted (…) it intelligently  explores how longstanding traditions can be gradually upended by drugs, money and outside influences.
 Jordan Mintzer: The Hollywood Reporter

“Is an engrossing narco-thriller which deftly balances the storytelling tradition of the Wayuu with the genre conventions of the crime movie and the western.”
 Wendy Ide: Screendaily
